At our very core, so many of us are tightly wound with insecurities.

We often don’t feel good enough, smart enough, qualified enough, or worthy enough.

These insecurities can become our undoing, our own personal attack on the good things in our lives.

We put on our smiles each day to cover these insecurities up, pretending they are not there, and, for the most part, as an interim measure, we succeed.

Check out is in an hour. I have just spent two nights in the most amazing house with eight other people, only one of whom I had met before.

As the weekend went on, we discussed how owning such a house would feel. It really felt like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous with a full glass side of the house overlooking the ocean, a heated Jacuzzi for eight, heated floors, a full library and games room, and an amazing fireplace area, which I am learning isn’t that special for Tasmania, but only six weeks in from sunny Queensland, it’s a novelty to me.
